[the 14 Jer homilies are on 585B-692C] Jerome's Latin renderings are also found in PG 13 accompanying the corresponding Greek homilies (see above); in fact, 12 of the 14 Latin homilies have an extant Greek basis.

Ephrem the Syrian (ca. 306-373)
"S. Patris Nostri Ephraem Syri In Ieremiam Prophetam Explanatio", in Sancti patris nostri Ephraem Syri opera omnia quae extant graece, syriace, et latine; in sex tomos distributa. Ad MSS. Codices Vaticanos, aliosque castigata, multis aucta, interpretatione, praefationibus, notis, variantibus lectionibus illustrata. Nunc primum sub Auspiciis Benedicti XIV, Pontificis Maximi, e Bibliotheca Vaticana prodeunt. Syriacum textum recensuit Petrus Benedictus [Mubarak] Societatis Jesu, notis vocalibus animavit, latine vertit, & Variorum scholiis locupletavit. Tomus Secundus, Syriace et Latine (Romae: ex Typographia Vaticana apud Jo. Mariam Henricum Salvioni, 1740) 98-162. [This Tomus Secundus of the Syriac-Latin part is sometimes listed as vol. 5 of the whole six-volume set prepared under the general editorship of J. S. Assemani]
The Syriac text is taken from the Catena of Severus (dated to 861); to what degree it transmits authentic material from Ephrem is not certain.

John Chrysostom (ca. 349-407) / Pseudo-Chrysostom
A.   [John Chrysostom] "Homilia in locum illum Jeremiae, Domine non est in homine via eius, etc." [Jer 10,23], PG 56 (ed. 1859) 153-162.

B.   [Pseudo-Chrysostom] "Sancti Joannis Chrysostomi Constantinopolitani archiepiscopi commentariorum in Jeremiam prophetam quae supersunt" [Fragmenta in Ieremiam ex catena Michaelis Ghislerii], PG 64 (ed. 1862) 739-1038. [taken from Greek catenae]
See J. A. de Aldema, Repertorium pseudochrysostomicum (Documents, études et répertoires publiés par l'Institut de Recherche et d'Histoire des Textes, 10; Paris: Éditions du Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, 1965) 86 (# 239) [online here]: apart from some fragments taken from Theodotet of Cyrus in the first four chapters, this commentary is attributed to Polychronius of Apamea by several scholars. Polychronius, bishop of Apamea, and a brother of Theodore of Mopsuestia, died ca. 430. However Kannengiesser, DSpir 8, 895 (see "Studies" below) is sceptical of this attribution.

Jerome (ca. 347-419/20)
[an unfinished commentary that stops at Jer 32,44]
"S. Eusebii Hieronymi Stridonensis presbyteri commentariorum in Jeremiam Prophetam, Libri sex", PL 24 (ed. 1845) 679-900 / (ed. 1865) 705-936.

Greek exegetical catenae on Jeremiah (the oldest is dated between 538 and 639)
A.   Michele Ghisleri's (1563-1646) publication of Greek Jeremiah-catenae material
Michaelis Ghisleri Romani ex clericis regularibus, In Jeremiam prophetam commentarij: Item in Baruch & breves D. Jo. Chrysost. in Jeremiam explanationes, & octo Origenis homiliae: quae omnia nunc primum in lucem emittuntur. 3 Tomi (Lugduni: sumptibus Laurentii Durand, 1623).
This massive work contains Ghisleri's own commentary on Jer 1-10 and 11-15 (in the first two volumes), with two catenae on the whole book of Jeremiah: the first compiled by Ghisleri himself from printed works of various Fathers and medieval authors, the second being an old Greek catena on Jer ("catena graeca veterum patrum graecorum") based largely on a Vatican MS: Vat. 1154) with a facing Latin translation. Short comments of John Chrysostom (actually Pseudo-Chrysostom: see above) and eight Greek homilies of Origen (translated here into Latin) are added to the commentary at their appropriate places. Volume 3 contains the same Catenae material for Lam and Bar.
Ghisleri's Greek catena is not a full and accurate copy of the source MS; some patristic scholia were omitted from the Greek catena and other scholia were added. For further details see Faulhaber 1899: 89-98; Aussedat 2006 [next title here]: 9, 15, 89-90, 112.

VI.    Appendix: Online resources

1.   The Post-Reformation Digital Library (PRDL)
This site gives convenient access to online versions of very many of the works noted above.
From the homepage: "The Post-Reformation Digital Library (PRDL) is a select database of digital books relating to the development of theology and philosophy during the Reformation and Post-Reformation/Early Modern Era (late 15th-18th c.). Late medieval and patristic works printed and referenced in the early modern era are also included."

2.   German-language printed material from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries
The following resources can often supply titles that are missing in PRDL.
VD16: Das Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachbereich erschienenen Drucke des 16. Jahrhunderts
VD17: Das Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts
VD18: Das Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 18. Jahrhunderts
All three are easily accessible through the very useful "Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog".
